The crest of Monte San Gabriele,

the south and southeast and the Frlgl

of the most bitter fighting, the Italian
i embassy at Washington announces.
This news of victory, probably
the greatest teat of the Italian
arms thus far In the war, pro

Rome. The statement from the
Italian war office says that the fight

was impeded by heavy rain.
The Italian effort to capture San
Gabriele began after the taking of
Monte Santo, directly north, by Gen-
Seral Cadorna's troops on August 25.

top was occupied by the Italians, the
embassy reports after the fortified
hill or saddle of Dol and the Gargaro
basin, the main bulk of San Gabriele
had been taken. The Austrlpns, how
ever, still cling to some positions on
the mountain. In the forest of Tar

The development of sentiment

and convincing replies. Of these, the
one recurring most frequently Is:

With the limited road and bridge
funds usually available In any town

main highways at least In passnble
condition, little or nothing Is left for
working upon the less traveled roarls.
As repair expense practically censes
when permanent roads are built, the
road and bridge funds formerly spent
on main roivls will be released for use
upon the side roads.
In addition, money spent upon these
side roads will go five times as far,
